Synopsis: Along with used car dealers and telemarketers, lawyers are considered to be among the least trustworthy of all professionals. If lawyers want more respect, they will have to earn it by reframing their ethical responsibilities. In an original approach to law's moral dilemma, legal theorist Allan C. Hutchinson takes seriously the idea that 'litigation is war.' By drawing an extended analogy with the theory of ethical warfare, he examines the most difficult questions facing practicing lawyers today. Comparing the role of military officers to legal professionals and theories of just peace to legal settlement, Hutchinson outlines a boldly original approach to legal ethics. Fighting Fair's recommendation for a more substantive, honor-based approach to ethics will be a thought-provoking tool for anyone concerned about the moral standing of the legal profession.
Book Description: The traditional model of legal ethics is broken beyond repair. In an original approach, legal theorist Allan C. Hutchinson takes seriously the idea that 'litigation is war.' By drawing an extended analogy from military ethics, he demonstrates what it means to be an ethical lawyer in today's practice.
